Randy, You are right about my bad timing on landing the Dixie Delta. I envy the way you mush all the way in with yours. I did not mean to criticize your model and was thinking at the time of how a full size delta may be better controlled with a front elevator and to not have to depend on rear elevons to control the attitude at low landing speed. My 30% canards give me good nose UP control at low speeds. I feel the large size is needed on model planes just as larger rear elevators are better to deal with low Reynolds numbers. Charles
